Arranging for work to be completed on your house can be a stressful experience. Because the cost of work is typically so high, you need to be 100% confident with the builders’ ability to carry out the work to your exact specifications. And, based on research conducted by the Federation of Master Builders, fewer and fewer homeowners feel this way; because of the anxiety over hiring a competent builder, the UK is missing out on £10 billion worth of investment in home improvements.
You should treat hiring wall coating specialists with the same diligence and thoroughness you would hiring any other employee. To help you separate workers of repute and quality from those you are unlikely to receive a high standard of work from, we have put together a list of red flags to look for. In addition, we have also assembled a list of signifiers of an experienced, reputable and high-quality company that is genuinely committed to providing an excellent service to its customers.
Look for in-demand builders
As much as it can be inconvenient (and as much as it sounds counterintuitive), if a worker agrees to work on something almost immediately (as convenient and time-efficient as it may be) chances are that they aren’t of the quality you need. Generally speaking, an in-demand worker is a quality worker and struggling to secure a date for them to work on your house is no bad thing.
London wall coating reviews and recommendations
In the same way that interviewing a prospective job candidate, you would ask for a CV detailing their skills, accreditation and job history, you can ask the same thing of your prospective contractor. Are they accredited by their relevant authorities? Do they have a history of happy customers? Asking family, friends, and co-workers for recommendations is a good place to start; word-of-mouth endorsements are just as valuable as online reviews. After asking acquaintances, your next step should be to check for online reviews. The more websites you can find verifying a company’s quality, the better.
